Scott Abbett has been on both sides of the physical fitness spectrum. In his teens and early twenties, he was a skinny kid who desperately wanted to gain muscle weight. In his late twenties through mid thirties, he was a self-proclaimed carbohydrate junkie with a thirty-eight inch waistline and a penchant for eating two double cheeseburgers and over-sized fries in a single sitting. "I used to fall asleep on the couch with a stomach full of lasagna with extra cheese, banana cream pie, and forty ounces of beer", says Scott. "I know what carb addiction is." He ballooned up to over 230 pounds at a mere five-foot eight.
Yet he's twice finished a physical regimen that most men couldn't do once. "When I went through Basic Underwater Demolition/SEAL Training in the 1980s, we had 75% voluntary attrition by the end of Hell Week. I finished it twice. I know what it's like to be in elite physical condition, as well as what it's like to be so out of shape as to get winded just walking up a flight of stairs."
Scott's experiences with extreme fitness and unremitting fat gain have taught him much about the mind and body. In addition, over twenty years of natural bodybuilding have led him to unorthodox muscle building methods that have made this "formerly frustrating endeavor" into a "rewarding experience of continuous muscle expansion."
Scott is a certified Trainer of NLP and is also certified in Sport's Mental Training. He claims his Fitness Trainer's certification seems more a formality than anything else. "I've learned my most valuable lessons in fitness and physique enhancement through twenty years of experience."
For this reason, he's named his business 'Street-Smart Fitness Co.'
